The application deadline for the annual Inside Self-Storage Scholarship Program has been extended to Nov. 30th. Interested parties are encouraged to apply for one of five $2,000 grants, good toward tuition at any accredited college or university.
The ISS Scholarship Program, initiated in 2001, encourages the educational pursuits of students closely affiliated with self-storage. Entrants are required to work in the industry or have immediate family members employed by self-storage or related companies. The scholarship funds, however, can be used to study any designated field.
To qualify, applicants must be at least 17 years of age; show proof of at least one-year affiliation with the self-storage industry; and plan to attend a college or university in 2007. Only one entry per family will be accepted.
Applications must be received no later than Nov. 30. All submissions should be typed or very clearly printed. They may be submitted via fax to 480.281.6038; by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; or by mail to:
Inside Self-Storage Scholarship Program
P.O. Box 40079
Phoenix, AZ 85067-0079
The scholarship committee will select winners by Dec. 31. All recipients will be notified in writing by Jan. 30. A formal announcement will be made at the Inside Self-Storage Expo in Las Vegas, Feb. 20-23, at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
